You're clearly not tired of zombies, are you? How could you be? They're the perfect surrogate for people in violent video games. Without worrying about any of the moral consequences, you can shoot, chainsaw, maim, electrify, incinerate, or nominate them for Oscars! Try doing that with a normal human being! In Zombiewood, the carnage takes place in a Hollywood (get it?) backlot, the one place you've always wanted to let loose and break stuff.

It's a little unclear from the description just what part of this game has any filmmaking aspect, aside from being in a studio. Isn't that really all you need, though? The undead are running through 11 different movie sets and it's your job to clear them out. Zombiewood touts itself as the "ultimate dual-stick shooter," which is great for all of you with two analog sticks on your phone. The rest of us will be using our virtual controls as usual. Whether that's great or an annoyance is up to you.

Half the fun of murdering the reanimated, of course, is the weapons you use to do it. In true Gameloft style, you can expect a wide array of weapons at your disposal, and an in-app purchase system to go along with it that can accelerate your acquisition of arms, as well as the drain on your wallet. The game is free to play, though, so grab it from the widget below.

    Based on the iOS version I played yesterday, this is going to be one heck of a freemium ride. You get an hour of solid gameplay time, before the excruciating IAPs rear them ugly side.

    getting freaking tired of this stupid zombie fad. how the hell did this zombie thing get popular?

    also the bacon fad too

    • MooseCat

      Bacon is delicious though.

      I'd blame American (read: Hollywood) movies for this incessant zombie fad. Looks like ever since Zombieland was released, too many games (mobile especially) have had a zombie influence.

        To be fair. Zombieland was making fun of zombie movies because it was way played out before then. Then Zombieland was awesome so everyone latched back on.

      I think it's just comfortable for game studios since they can't have you shooting people like in the olden days (political correctness, "oh won't you think of the children" and all that crap).

      I love zombies :-)

    The only thing more tired than Zombies is IAPs. Pass..

  • Skyeclad

    Games modeled on IAP just suck...period. I don't want to pay a ridiculous amount to continue to play your game. I don't want 2 different monetary systems. I don't want my kid accidentally buying $15 worth of upgrades for your lame game(he's 4 and I neglected to put a pin in place on my wife's phone). Charge a fair price and be done with this.

    Another zombie game? Yawn...
